Offering for February 24, 2024

Michigan Advance Partners

When Kelly received a Discovering Revelation handbill in her mailbox, she knew it was from the Lord. “I had been lost for quite a while and needed guidance—and that was my ticket,” she explained. When asked what she appreciated about the meetings she said, “They’re riveting! It’s basically laying out Revelation unlike anything I’ve ever seen before.”

She went on to describe how welcoming the church family was: “They’ve made me feel like I’ve been here all my life. People shake my hand, and they take the time to welcome me to their church and I’m not even a member! But I will be by the time I’m done. I’ve found my home.”

Kelly’s testimony is wonderful, but far from unique. Evangelistic outreach takes place across the Michigan Conference each year and time and again, people have the same experience Kelly had at Discovering Revelation.

Today’s offering goes to support Michigan Advance Partners, 33.33% of which supports Conference evangelism. Please give generously to help others like Kelly find their home, too.

North American Division Stewardship Ministries

Did God Create Viruses?

On Sabbath, February 24 at 3:30 PM in Chan Shun Hall, Michiana Adventist Forum and the Andrews University Department of Biology will sponsor a talk by Dr. James Hayward, professor emeritus of biology, entitled “Did God Create Viruses?” The COVID-19 pandemic brought viruses front and center to the stage of human consciousness. Yet a great deal of misunderstanding remains about these biological entities. What are viruses? Are they alive? How were they discovered? How diverse are they? How do they reproduce and how are they transmitted? In what ways do they impact human society? Are some viruses “good”? Did God create viruses? These are some of the questions to be addressed in this presentation.
